Our bodies don’t store protein the way it stores other nutrients. So we have to consume it every day. A healthy adult needs to consume approximately 0.80 grams of protein per pound of their body weight. According to this study, revising your metabolism will ensure that approximately 25 to 45 percent of your daily calories come from protein. Include healthy sources of protein like lean protein like lean meat, seafood, beans, soy, low fat dairy, eggs, nuts and seeds in your diet. Fruits and vegetables like blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, peppers, mushrooms, and cruciferous vegetables are also healthy choices.
